Ep. 040 - Shari Ostrow Scher


In 2005 Shari Ostrow Scher founded the Children of Incarcerated Parents Partnership, a nonprofit organization which benefits children and families of people held in the Frederick County Adult Detention Center. Ostrow Scher joins host Colin McGuire and News-Post courts reporter Kelsi Loos to discuss the work being done by the one-of-a-kind organization.

Ostro Scher says when a parent is incarcerated the family is almost always thrown into poverty. "That child needs to know that they're going to have their food and their clothing and their life and often that doesn't happen," she said in this latest episode of the Frederick Uncut podcast.
